Professor of Art Katharine Kuharic was recently named the San Francisco Art Institute’s (SFAI) 2018 Richard Diebenkorn Teaching Fellow. Established in 1998, the fellowship is dedicated to the memory of renowned painter Richard Diebenkorn, a former SFAI student who also taught at the school.
According to her award letter, Kuharic will teach two courses at SFAI during the fall 2018 semester, present a public lecture, and “engage with the SFAI community through individual student critiques, academic programs, and activities.” The Fellowship provides compensation of $25,000.
Kuharic was also named an artist-in-residence at Headlands Art Center for the Arts in Sausalito, Calif. According to the Headlands website, the four -to-10-week residencies “include studio space, chef-prepared meals, comfortable housing, and travel and living stipends.”
The multidisciplinary, international arts center supports the creative process, giving artists-in-residence an opportunity to exchange ideas and develop collaborative relationships. Fifty-four artists from 15 states and 15 countries will serve as artists-in-residence this year.
